This Mural Was Painted Upside-Down To Reflect Off Of The Water


New York-based artist Ray Bartkus has created a beautiful mural in the Lithuanian city of Marijampolė designed to use the surface of the water as its true canvas. Bartkus intentionally painted it upside-down so that the swimmers, rowers and swans he depicted would be reflected right-side-up onto the river Šešupė, which flows through the city’s center.

The image used to demonstrate this effect seems to have been digitally edited, though we’re sure it’s quite impressive in person regardless.
